AWR 147: Rail Car Incident Response

AWR 147: Rail Car Incident Response is an 8-hour, awareness
level course developed to educate rural emergency responders
on freight rail car incidents involving hazardous materials.
Because most freight rail traffic traverses rural areas, it is
important that rural responders, especially those in
resource-limited areas, understand the dangers and unique
hazards these incidents present. Although safeguards are in
place to prevent hazardous materials from causing harm under
normal transportation, storage, handling and use, if any of these
safeguards are circumvented, there is potential for great harm.
Upon completion of this DHS approved course, participants will
be better prepared to respond to a freight rail car incident without
endangering the health and safety of responders.
Key points covered in this course include:
• Identifying the design, construction, components and
markings of rail tank cars;
• Recognizing the chemical being transported, and the manner
in which the chemical must be considered in an emergency;
• Determining damage to the car and the potential hazard to
people, property and the environment;
• Recognizing possible mitigation strategies for breached
freight cars;
• Identifying characteristics and key resources in the rail/freight
industry as well as federal, state, and private resources
available to assist in a response effort
*Please note all foreign nationals need to complete a DHS Foreign National

Driving Simulation Lab

Driving Simulation Lab

Acquired through an Assistance to Firefighters Grant, the Mobile Driving Simulation Lab system is a training resource that is integrated into a driver skills and judgement training curriculum.
It provides a bridge between classroom-delivered instruction and actual operation of a motor vehicle on a prepared course or public roadway. A driver can experience the consequences of making decisions based upon incomplete information. Drivers can practice making decisions in simulated life and death situations similar to those actually encountered on the road that would be too dangerous to perform in the real world.
There will be 2 section each day with 8 slots per section. 4-hour morning section (8:00 AM) or a 4-hour afternoon section (12:00 PM )
Sign up early, to reserve your preferred time slot.
